Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay -Optical Illusion Complexion Primer

It's a pretty average silicone-y primer. Has that velvet feel and makes foundation go on smoothly. Cruelty-free. Not irritating. I do think it (and others like it) clings to dry skin, so it's really not ideal for me. Moreover, there's nothing special to justify it's comparatively high price when there are similar products out there for less.


Eye Makeup Remover -Drunk Elephant -Slaai Makeup Melting Butter Cleanser

I've used this once and can say it won't be a repurchase. It comes in a jar and supplied with a spatula. I like that it's unscented and easy to apply. I didn't experience any sensitivity as previous reviewers reported. Where the problem lies with me is how my face doesn't feel clean afterwards. I thought it would be great as a one step cleanser, but I felt my face needed an additional wash with another cleanser. The box stated it transforms from oil to milk upon contact with water. I would say more oil than milk. I wouldn't recommend this for oily or combo skin.

This cleanser comes with a sample of their new Bamboo Booster. The Booster is an exfoliant that contains Zea Mays ( Corn ) Starch and Charcoal. Those two ingredients are not good for dry skin types like mine.


Crème -essence -Soft Touch Mousse make-up

Important; i have dry skin.
I actually felt so dumb for the amount of money ive spent on foundation when this was out there the whole time, omg, €4.90!!! I haven't used mousse since my very early teens so i didn't know what to expect, i know with mousse you ought to use a small amount and not overdo it, its very easy to get cakey wheb usinh mousse so use sparingly, plus a little goes such a long way! It makes you look all porcelain smooth and i love how it dries, the finish is beautiful! I have shade 04 which is perfect for when i have fake tan but for when i don't I'll pick up some lighter ones. It covers anything up nicely and BONUS, contour and highlight look beautiful over it! The mousse formula makes blending countour that much easier, (i can NOT blend lmao). I dont know what it is or why but my highlighter just sits over it so perfectly. Dries quickly but not instantly so you can work around with it, ive had mine on for 9 hours now and still looks like when i first put it on. It feels very fluffy. Its very light but the coverage is VERY full and like i said gives a dollface look. It blends in so easily, i wasnt sure how to go about blending mousse so i finger blended. Not heavily perfumed either. Ill be using this from now on!


Concealers -Unlisted Brand -Bys All Day Wear Concealer

It’s a shame this concealer is not on the database as I found this to be a great concealer. I needed a concealer to not only brighten my under eye but also to cover my dark circles without the need of a colour corrector when doing minimal makeup. I discovered this by chance when I was looking for my shade in the E.L.F. section but couldn’t find one so I took a chance on this brand as it was super cheap and didn’t want to waste so much money if it didn’t work for me. I bought the shade Sand Beige which was a deeper beige and neutral in colour. This thankfully worked for me as it not only brightened up my under eyes but the coverage of my dark circles was pretty good! This also hydrated my skin as it is formulated with Argan oil, has vitamin E for smoothness and Hyaluronic Acid to keep it plumped. Concealer is buildable without the cakeyness and lasts all day when set with powder. Definitely worth checking out for super cheap drugstore concealer.


Bronzers -NYC New York Color -Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder - Sunny

this is really pretty. this is a lot better then the e.l.f bronzer pallet that i usually use. its not powdery or chalky on the skin. its great for fair-light skin people because its not super dark or orange. its not super pigmented so its the perfect bronzer if you want something you can build or just want a subtle look. i just use a little bit to warm up my face and it looks so natural. the package looks pretty and cute but does feel cheap. its a pretty thin plastic so the top feels like it can break off pretty easily. i wasnt expecting to like it because it does look like it would be fairly dark in the pan but its not. im so happy i got this because it was literally one of the two last bronzers on the shelf at the store. i will definitely be using this a lot from now on. i got it for only 5.99 at my local drugstore so its a really affordable but gorgeous bronzer


Highlighters -COVERGIRL -TruBlend Super Stunner Highlight Palette - It's Lit

on 4/25/2019 6:31:00 PM

this is a really good highlight palette. they looked really pretty at the store and great for fair-light skin tones so i had to try it out. comes with 3 shades. light, medium and dark all are super pigmented and a "in your face" highlight. the shades are natural looking but are still blinding. these are buttery smooth and are super easy to blend and build. they last a long time on the skin. there are two shades for this pallet, the Glowing Up palette has warmer and darker highlighters for darker skin tones. hopefully they will come out with more because these two palettes arent for all skin tones. the price ranges from $9.99-$14.99 depending on where you get it, i got mine for $14.99 at the drugstore. you get good amount of product in each pan, so it will last you for a good amount of time. the packaging is simple, clean and to the point and is travel friendly. i have used all the shades and i love them all but i do like the lightest one the best. really good if you want a natural coloured highlighter. this has replaced my go to highlighters for sure because i do like a natural look and this is perfect for it


Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

This product is actually sorcery. Seriously dont know how they do it. Stays on through ANYTHING, ive fallen asleep in this by accident and i wake up, its still there looking as it did upon application! Ive gone swimming in it, had it rained on, stayed there! Stays really easily but is surprisingly easy to take off, so it'll only budge if you want it to. The only time it comes off otherwise is when you're drinking because alcohol will naturally erode it, but thats to be expected. Its not dry at all, you cant even feel it on, the matte finish is beautiful, really smoot, really love the shade range, i have the red shade "pioneer", i wear it every day, but i really want to try the darker one. HG lipstick. 10/10

Bronzers -benefit Cosmetics -HOOLA

This was my first bronzing powder as I never wore bronzers due to lack of makeup use from my teens and most of my thirties as my skin was pretty good back then and only used makeup for special occasions like weddings. I started wearing makeup over the last couple of years (after trial and error with makeup products) due to my skin developing pigmentation and dark circles (thanks shift work and allergies) and I didn’t like how my face looked tired all the time. I received the Hoola Bronzer in a gift set as a Christmas gift from a coworker and I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to use it. Afterwards I bought a new foundation and unfortunately the shade was too light for my skin tone and to correct it I used this bronzer. It corrected the shade and made my skin look natural without that cakey powdery look. Worked for my combo oily/dry skin as my face stayed matte all day. I don’t care for the brush applicator it came with but with a powder brush it blends so smoothly. I use this more for setting my makeup during summer when I tend to tan for a minimal makeup look to achieve that healthy glow. Definitely worth the price as I had bought cheaper bronzers that didn’t give the same results.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Water Gel

Good value product, but my skin didn’t love it, it didn’t decrease the redness or the flakes and my skin kept feeling tight, despite my applying this product liberally and sometimes even layering it on top of oily serum. Perhaps my skin is just too dry, but I honestly cannot wait to get to the bottom of my jar, so I can move on to something better.

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand -Ialuset cream 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid by Avibon

I am shocked to be the fourth reviewer for ialuset. Get on this product, people!

Technically, ialuset is a medical cream that's intended for use on "healing uninfected, oozing or superinfected wounds, including leg ulcers."

Ladies, our faces aren't quite oozing ulcers, but they do need some TLC from time to time. ialuset provides this in spades. I would describe this as a white, water-based cream/serum. I have only ever used ialuset at night, though I understand from others that it is also great for daytime use.

The 100g tube cost around €9 at a pharmacy in Paris. Online retailers charge $25+ USD, which is probably still cheaper than most HA products on the market.

FYI I have only ever used ialuset in the metal tube (ialuset crème). I know that it also comes in a pressurized spray can (ialuset crème flacon pressurisé), but I can't vouch for how dis/similar that formula is.
